Wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, has donated undisclosed amount of money to 48 victims of the recent Gombe bomb blast admitted at the Federal Teaching and Specialists' Hospital (FTH), Gombe.
Hajiya Aisha Jibir, member representing Dukku/Nafada Federal constituency of Gombe State, presented the money Saturday in Gombe, on behalf of the First Lady.
Jibir told the victims that she was sent by the president's wife to commiserate with them and give them a token assistance.
“The president's wife was told about your conditions and being a caring mother, she decided to assist.
“The amount is just a token to help relieve you of the suffering you are encountering.
“She also prayed for the soul of those that lost their lives in the blast, to rest in peace.”
Dr. Abubakar Sa’ad, Medical Director of the hospital, commended the president's wife for reaching out to the affected people.
He said that a total of 48 victims of the blast were receiving and responding to treatment at the hospital. (NAN)
